The Fermilab Natural Areas organization, formed in 2006, is a not for profit, all volunteer network dedicated to restoring, managing and enhancing the natural areas and resources of Fermilab in order to maintain and improve their ecological health and biodiversity. We do not receive funding from Fermilab or the federal government and depend on membership, donations and grants to fund our operations. Throughout the year, we conduct work events where volunteers come together to participate in organized restoration projects. We welcome all volunteers, donations and memberships to FNA.
We aim to conserve, restore and study the natural areas within Fermilab while encouraging employees and neighbors to experience and enjoy Fermilab’s natural beauty.
Our vision is to see that Fermilab’s natural areas and ecosystems are rich in biodiversity, that conservation and restoration are sustainable activities, that Fermilab is a regional leader in natural areas research and that the people of the surrounding communities consider the enjoyment of our open spaces to be a valuable contributor to a high quality of life.
